Our History of Lodge No.6456

Family Tree

After World War II a number of Royal Fusiliers decided to continue their Masonic association in peacetime. The Royal Fusiliers is a regiment associated with the City of London. The Royal Rose Lodge No 2565 consecrated in 1895 being already connected with the regiment, became the sponsor for the new lodge which was named the Rose of England Lodge to show its connection with the mother lodge. The lodge was consecrated on 22nd May 1947.  It remained a London Lodge until 1976, when the Horseshoe Hotel in Tottenham Court Road ceased catering for Masonic functions and the Lodge moved to Middlesex. Several members at that time welcomed the move as they worked as aircraft designers, engineers and pilots with The De Havilland Aircraft Company based in Stanmore and Hatfield, nowadays known British Aerospace.
